Halal food is basically a little bit difficult to find especially if you are not doing enough research and not really familiar with the places that you go. We were facing quite a difficult time finding Halal food in the beginning for a few days.
We really depends on hot coffee to make ourselves full and due to cold weather as well.
When we were travelling by train with Northern Explorer Train for about 9 hours, we just ate muffin, Anzac cookies and drank coffees due to unavailability of Halal Food.
Our journey at South Island was overall on campervan. Hence, we have the luxury to cook in our kitchen. We bought all the groceries from PAK’nSAVE. We bought halal chicken from Tegel that you may find it at PAK’nSAVE.
Hence, it is vital to plan and doing enough research for Halal food. You may refer several links below for further information.
